NEW SOLUTIONS TO IMPLEMENTING INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA THROUGH ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION OF SCHOOL ORGANIZATION.
COGSWELL, JOHN F.
A PROJECT WAS DESCRIBED THAT WOULD USE SYSTEMS ANALYSIS AND COMPUTER SIMULATION TECHNIQUES TO FIND NEW WAYS TO IMPLEMENT INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA. THE FOUR MAJOR STEPS TO BE TAKEN FOR THIS STUDY ARE--(1) SURVEY AND SELECTION OF HIGH SCHOOLS, (2) SYSTEM ANALYSIS OF THE FIVE HIGH SCHOOLS SELECTED FOR STUDY, (3) CONSTRUCTION OF A COMPUTER-SIMULATION VEHICLE TO BUILD MODELS OF THE SCHOOLS AND OF HYPOTHETICAL CHANGES IN THE SCHOOLS, AND (4) SIMULATION AND STUDY OF THE FIVE SCHOOLS SELECTED WHICH WILL RANGE FROM FAIRLY TRADITIONAL TO HIGHLY INNOVATIVE. THE SCHOOLS ARE BEING SELECTED BY ANALYSIS OF QUESTIONNAIRES SUBMITTED TO 200 HIGH SCHOOLS IDENTIFIED BY STATE DEPARTMENTS OF EDUCATION AS BEING INVOLVED IN INNOVATION. AT THE TIME OF REPORTING, TWO OF THE FIVE SCHOOLS HAD BEEN SELECTED. THESE WERE--(1) THE CONTINUOUS PROGRESS PLAN SCHOOL DEVELOPED BY DR. EDWIN READ AT BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY LABORATORY SCHOOL AND (2) THE CULVER CITY HIGH SCHOOL IN LOS ANGELES. ANALYSIS OF THE SCHOOLS CONSISTS OF (1) COLLECTING DATA DESCRIPTIVE OF THE HIGH SCHOOL, AND (2) TRANSLATING THE DATA INTO FLOW CHARTS. FOLLOWING THE ANALYSIS, DESIGN CHANGES IN THE ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE TO FACILITATE USE OF THE NEW MEDIA WILL BE SUGGESTED AND THESE CHANGES WILL BE EVALUATED BY USE OF THE COMPUTER-SIMULATION VEHICLE. RELATED REPORTS ARE ED 010 559 AND ED 010 577 THROUGH ED 010 581. (AL)
